Man Charged In Purse Snatching At Walmart Has Case Bound To The Grand Jury

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Robbery charges were bound to the Grand Jury on Tuesday against 20-year-old Arterrio Williams after a woman testified about her purse being snatched at a local Walmart parking lot .

The woman said she was injured after falling from a vehicle during the incident.

Detective Jason Woods said Williams, of 701 E. 49th St., gave a confession to the incident.

He said he admitted being with another youth and a female driver. He said he and the other male got out of the vehicle, then jumped back in with the purse, which contained $75 cash.

Under questioning by attorney Rip Biggs, Det. Woods said Williams at one point asked about getting a lawyer but the interview continued. Attorney Biggs said an audio showed Williams saying, "Do I need a lawyer? I want a lawyer."

He said also on the audio, Det. Michael Early told Williams, "Since you're asking for a lawyer we're just going to take you to jail."

Det. Woods said nothing that was taken in the robbery has been recovered.

He said the others involved have not been apprehended.

General Sessions Court Judge Christie Sell kept bond for Williams at $100,000.
